China’s Flagby P.J. Blount with the blog faculty
Last Thursday (November 22) China rolled out new airspace regulations that nearly doubled the number of civilian flights that could be in the air at any given time. This will be accomplished by decreasing the vertical space between planes from 600 meters to 300 meters, which will increase the number of flight layers between 8,400 and 12,500 meters to 13. China still faced flight delays last week after airspace controls were imposed by the military for “unspecified reasons.” (see also Reuters)
